    Dear Sharon

    I would like to part in your Thread of Life cross stitch project and it sounds very interesting. I found out about it from my local WI group , The Darling Roses in Alwoodley Leeds 17, which is part of the Leeds federation of the WI. I haven’t decided yet on a title for my piece. I notice you have asked for the finished piece not to be framed, but would it be ok to bind the edges in material/ribbon or suchlike?

    Does the pattern have to be the same as yours but our own colour and can we add our own bits to it

    • The pattern is a template really, which you can adapt as much or as little as you like. You really can do anything you like to the pattern, and be as experimental as you chose with your own work.
